Tennessee football’s homecoming game for the 2024 season is officially set. The Vols will celebrate homecoming Nov. 9 as they host Mississippi State at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville.

The Vols’ homecoming game has frequently been its November non conference matchup in recent seasons but Tennessee is instead opting for its matchup against the Bulldogs on Nov. 9 instead of its matchup against UTEP two weeks later on Nov. 23.

While Tennessee hasn’t played SEC teams on homecoming in recent seasons it’s not truly a new development. According to VolReport’s Noah Taylor, Tennessee has played 40 homecoming games against SEC teams and currently boasts a 25-14-1 record in the games. This season will mark the second time that the Vols have faced Mississippi State on homecoming, previously knocking off the Bulldogs on homecoming 1961.

Tennessee’s matchup against Mississippi State is sandwiched between SEC matchups. The Vols host Kentucky at Neyland Stadium the first week of November before their homecoming matchup against the Bulldogs.

Following its matchup against Mississippi State, the Vols head on the road for their hardest matchup of the season as they face Georgia in Athens. Tennessee then concludes its regular season with a home matchup against UTEP and a road game at Vanderbilt.

This season’s matchup between Tennessee and Mississippi State is the first since 2019 when the Vols knocked off the Bulldogs 19-10 in an ugly matchup at Neyland Stadium. Tennessee’s homecoming game will have an interesting spin on it as Josh Heupel faces his assistant coach Jeff Lebby.

Lebby is Mississippi State’s first-year head coach after spending stints as the Oklahoma and Ole Miss offensive coordinator. Prior to his stint at Ole Miss, Lebby was Heupel’s offensive coordinator at Central Florida.

  1. I think that this is the most complete team that Coach Barnes has put together here at Tenn. Not that he hasnt had some,but a foul away,from going to the aways remembered days. But this team has the ability to do what it needs to do on any team out there.And im talking every area,at any given time. And there is plenty chemistry to go around,There work together looks that of art. And i feel they are just now starting to gel together at the right time. Its all up to Coach, and its his time,
